Are you getting tired of all the hustle and bustle of our modern life too? Then maybe taking some time to relax in the garden is a good idea. What can be more relaxing than gardening? Rival knows for sure that there is no such thing, so those guys introduced their Secret Garden, a classic five-reeler with some 20 pay lines.
Winning rules here are pretty much ordinary. Combinations are paid only if they are formed starting from the first reel only. There should be no less than three identical tiles in a combo to count. The pay icons are all garden-themed. There are eight of them. The lowest paid is a set of Garden shovels and a tile with a Rabbit eating a carrot. The combination of five is worth 65 times your line wager. A Fountain and a Garden Cart full of flowers are paid 100x the line bet for the set of five. The same number of Watering cans is paid 150 times the original wager. A Squirrel is paid 350 times the wager for five. An icon with a Boy is worth 300x the bet for the combo of five. And, finally, a tile with a Girl is paid 400 times the line wager for five. We wouldn’t be surprised if her name is Mary, after all is a garden we are talking about.
But the highest paid tile is an icon with a bunch of Roses. If ordinary tiles are paid only starting from the set of three, then the Roses tile is paid for as little as two of a kind. Then the multiplier will be 5x the bet. For the combo of five it reaches as much as 500 times the wager.
If standard tiles’ payments are calculated from the number of coins staked per line and their value, then the Scatters payments are deduced from the total bets. Not to mention they are paid both ways. That is why we love them so much. Secret Garden features quite a number of those actually. So, just a couple of words about them.
The Scatter here is a tile with a door to the secret garden itself on it. Not to be confused, it has the sign ‘Scatter’ on it. The Secret Garden scatter is all about free games. Hit three Scatters and get 20 spins on the house. What’s more, they come with a doubling multiplier. For four scatters you get as much as 30 free games. If you are lucky to hit five, you will receive 50 games free of charge. The multiplier will be the same.
The Wild here is an icon featuring a substitute superpower. The Wild is a tile with a duck. It is paid for a combo as any regular pay symbol. There is only one exception: the minimal combination starts at two tiles. For the two you get your total bet multiplied ten times. If you land five, then it’s going to be as much as 5,000 times your original total wager.
The last but not the least, is the bonus tile. It looks like a key to the garden, so let’s call it the Master Key icon. Land three on the reels and unlock the Explore the Secret Garden Bonus Game. Bonus mode here is an interactive game, where you have to water flowers and plants to receive bonus points that will be added to your balance.
When it comes to spinning, there is nothing easier than any Rival slot. Those guys don’t mess with extras and stick straight to the point. So there are only the essentials left. Betting consists of choosing the lines, the number of coins staked per one line and the value of one coin. You may stake from one to ten coins per line, each coin maybe worth from 0.01 to 0.25. So your spin bet may go from 0.01 to 50.00 which makes the slot appealing to high rollers as well as gamblers with more modest wagering habits. Spinning itself may be done in a manual mode as well as in an automatic one. For questions concerning payouts and combinations, you may visit the Paytable menu section. It’s at the top of the reel screen and is really hard to miss.
Guess we all dig the concept of a garden: nourish it and be rewarded with 100% organic fruit and vegetables, awesome flowers and suchlike. Rival turned this horticultural concept into a gambling one: here for nourishing your Secret garden you may end up with sweet cash wins. Though the 95.81% RTP is slightly disappointing, winning in a game of chance was never about exact numbers. It was and still is all about luck. So, how about trying yours?
